Turkey Fajitas - Outstanding news

Turkey Fajitas



 
This is another quick and simple supper we enjoyed recently that is low in fat, carbs and sugars.   That's because I make the fajita seasoning from scratch . . .  not from  packet.
 
It is quite surprising the amount of sugar that will be in a ready-prep seasoning packet!!  Or maybe not.  We have been conditioned through the years to eat sugar in just about everything without even knowing it.
 
Its only been in recent years that healthy studies have confirmed that it really isn't fat that is our enemy, but sugar. There are several generations of people who have been sadly misinformed about that, and I am one of them.
 
For years I have been buying and eating low fat this and low fat that, only to keep getting, well . . .  fatter.  When you take the fat out of things you take out a lot of the flavour and sadly the need to put the flavour back in has resulted in gross amounts of sugar being added to things in on form or another.  
This recipe uses full fat Greek Yogurt as a garnish to the finished fajitas.  It is rich and creamy and a little bit goes a long way.  I add some green Tabasco sauce to it to give it some spark! 

 
Ideally you should use iceberg lettuce to hold the fajitas, as it forms a bit of a cupping shape, but I didn't have any, so used Cos (Romaine) lettuce on this occasion.  I just dolloped the fajita filling and the sour cream on top, and ate it like a salad.
